Boyce Thompson Agricultural Institute

IMG_1853 Last Friday a small contingent of the Atlas Obscura team went out to Yonkers to explore the abandoned greenhouses and building that formerly housed the Boyce Thompson Agricultural Institute. I am normally extremely risk adverse so trespassing makes me embarrassingly nervous, but the beauty of these abandoned greenhouses transported me away from my fears. Wandering atop a thick layer of broken glass under a green-tinted roof felt like an eerie fairytale.
